Kill. Die. Repeat.

The world has ended, and you stand upon its corpse. The restless dead wander its crumbling ruins, souls tied to purposeless bodies that refuse to settle. All they know is hunger, pain, cold. Violence.

You are one of them, but you possess something they don't - purpose, and the Flame. You bring peace to the dead, destroying their necrotic forms and swaddling their eternal souls in warmth as you transport them onward into the eternal slumber of true death.

But rest is temporary, and your Flame is only so strong. Each time you fall the souls escape your grasp, returning to their bodies and cursing them to wander once more. Only when you escape this purgatory will the souls you gather be able to be truly free.

Go. Wander. Kill, and be killed. Die, and be reborn again and again in your flame until one day, perhaps, you will transcend the bounds of this place and finally shepherd the dead into another realm.


Dice Souls is a zero prep Souls-like dungeon exploration game for one or two players.

Set out into a procedurally generated world filled with traps, monsters, and unbelievable bosses. 

Kill them. Take their souls. DieGet better.

As you play you'll answer questions about the world and your place in it that will build the story of what happened to the world, why you're here, and what your purpose is. No two games will ever be the same.

Dice Souls features an innovative Monster Replay system to emulate Souls-like gameplay, and a unique Narrative Telegraphing system for bosses that lets players git gud by learning the move sets of the enemies they face and defeating them through experience and repetition, without having to roll the dice every time.
